I have pre-ordered and wanted to know the answer so I used Google translate on the response above.
yes, the Players Guide should be included.
I do not know a "new" historical map. There is just one in which the optional structure (AU / RU) is already specified. If you mean that: yes, it is playable or has no effect.
I will also buy the new version.
Alternatively, I can scan you the scenarios from the Players Guide (-> PN to me).
